The 9th Annual 5th Grade Talent Show

The PBiS reward for February is to attend the talent show on Friday.  Students with more than 6 yellows, a blue, or a red will not be permitted to attend.  The STAND Students are asking for a $1 donation per person attending the show.  All proceeds will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House at Children’s Hospital in Detroit.  Please bring your dollar on Friday.  The talent show is for students only due to limited space in the gym.

In the Know

Several parents have asked for information that is more readily accessible through Apps instead of the Blog which comes through email.  In collaboration with the PTA, we will utilize Instagram to accommodate this need and make school communications more accessible.  While some of you have been following the PTA Instagram account, we have decided to merge into one school account so that information can be more streamlined through one account.  Be sure to follow the account below:

Our new handle is @howard_elementary

In addition, we have added a new page to our blog titled Academic and Student Related Resources…Check it out at the following link:

Student Celebrations

Last week was a busy week at Howard Elementary.  On Wednesday we celebrated our PTA Reflections participants and on Thursday we were finally able to swear in our newest student council members.  There were smiles all around.  Congratulations to all of our amazing students.  Our supportive PTA provided refreshments and awards for both groups of students and our safety squad served as excellent secret service for our elected student officials.  This week we will not be slowing down from hosting our Superintendent for a chat in the evening (all community members welcome) to our music concert on Thursday!
